A thought about leadership

Given the previous post talking about the failure of leadership in the RC Church and the present discussion in the ECC about how we wish our leadership to be constituted, I thought this concise quote is appropriate.

"Leadership is responsibility, not privilege;
action, not position;
guidance, not knowledge;
and outcome, not disposition."
- Dante Shepherd

  1. Son be done with thy foolish words;
    No man may rule my land,
    No man can master a hundred swords
    Whatever the strength of his hand.

    Rule for power and pride
    Alone in an empty hall;
    Serve or step aside
    The King is a servant or nothing at all.
